Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the renaming of the “Office of Research” to the “Office of Research and Innovation” effective Sept 1, 2021.  There are several reasons for this change:

“Office of Research and Innovation” aligns with University’s strategic plan goals, specifically “One of the most creative and innovative universities in the world.”
